Artist Provides Take on the "120K Banana" Fiasco

Recently Artist David Datuna made a statement by eating Maurizio Cattelan's art installation, which was a banana taped to a wall that was worth well over a hundred thousand dollars. Call us haters of modern art, but we're pretty happy to see low effort trash that people get to call "art" get eaten like the goddamned banana that it is. Artist Karla Ortiz said this about complacency of modern art galleries. Oh, also people are pretty sure this was part of a money laundering scheme.

Cartoonist Illustrates Star Wars Prequels with Actual Emotional Depth

While it's pretty generally agreed the Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace has some pretty big problems, and doesn't communicate its story well, award winning cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks made a really interesting version of Anakin's story. While it might not completely redeem the "ruined childhoods" of people who didn't like the prequels, it does something to fix the movies. For another star wars thing, here's a guy who set the record straight on a common misreading of Luke Skywalker.

Tumblr Pokes Artistic Fun at Overly Abstract Gender Chart

The concept for the chart makes sense, it's just an abstract visual metaphor that isn't articulated totally perfectly. That's fine and all, except people on the internet tend to take things very literally. The idea of having one feminine leg seems a bit absurd, so Tumblr took to doodling and had some fun with it. Tumblr is a madhouse of MS painting with Bob Ross and lessons about physics and car safety, so you never know exactly what to expect.

Seriously, following along with MS Paint is brilliant and highly commendable.
